Having a close relationship with your farmers is always an important element of any business, however the magic really happens when you become integral to their team.
In this role you will become part of the day to day team for your farmers, you will be their liaison between the farm and the processor, their guide and their trusted source of information. From working on sowing plans, to the agronomy, to the harvesting and storage and transport of their crops – you will be on hand every step of the way.
You will be responsible for a number of farmers in the area – who are already in supply contracts with this business – you will need to be influential in your character yet a supportive ear who will listen and take on feedback - reporting this back to our client to ensure that farmers feel fully supported.
